drAwn 2gether: Joanna Phelps


Diomira…a city with sixty silver domes…the multicoloured lamps are lighted all at once.

(Italo Clavino, Invisible Cites)

Cut or torn, carefully placed or hidden between layers of pattern; the various components merge to form a no-mans land where they can create and inhabit a space of their own.

The title of this piece is borrowed from ‘Invisible Cities’ by Italo Calvino.  Calvino’s imagined cities provide a quasi-narrative for this work that locates itself somewhere between the realms of drawing, painting and collage.
